The card for NXT UK’s first TakeOver special is set.
Travis Banks vs. Jordan Devlin was officially announced for NXT UK TakeOver: Blackpool on Wednesday’s go-home show for the special. TakeOver is taking place at the Empress Ballroom in Blackpool, England this Saturday and will air live on the WWE Network.
Banks and Devlin’s feud continued with Devlin coming out dressed as Banks and trying to distract Banks during his match against Tyson T-Bone on the second of this week’s NXT UK episodes. After Banks won, there was a post-match angle where Devlin ran to the ring and brawled with him. Devlin bailed when Banks got the better of it, and their match was announced for TakeOver soon after that.
NXT UK TakeOver: Blackpool will begin at 2 p.m. Eastern time on Saturday. There will also be a 30-minute pre-show on the WWE Network starting at 1:30 p.m. Eastern. Here’s the card for the show:
WWE United Kingdom Champion Pete Dunne defending against Joe Coffey
NXT UK Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley defending against Toni Storm
Moustache Mountain (Tyler Bate & Trent Seven) vs. Zack Gibson & James Drake in the finals of the NXT UK Tag Team title tournament
